Chicago Bears Round 7, Pick No. 226 Arlington Hambright | OG | Colorado
It took the Bears this long to address the offensive line. The Bears took Arlington Hambright out of Colorado to help their interior offensive line depth and potentially play due to injury, which he did.
Hambright got his only real playing time in their Week 9 matchup against the Tennessee Titans when virtually everyone was hurt or had COVID-19. He showed a lot of promise in that limited time with some great pancakes and the ability to move defensive linemen, but he still needs plenty of work. He played 100% of the offensive snaps in that game.
PFF didn’t grade him very high as he was only a 51.6, but that is not surprising as he was a seventh-round pick that they shouldn’t expect much out of. It remains to be seen how good he could be, but he could be a solid depth piece.
Chicago Bears Round 7, Pick No. 227 — Lachavious Simmons Ι OG Ι Tennessee State
The Bears doubled up on offensive guards back-to-back to add some depth. There isn’t much to say about Lachavious Simmons as the Bears didn’t have him active for a single game and since there was no preseason, can’t really gauge how good he is.
The good thing about him though is his versatility as he played everywhere on the offensive line in college. His size and length are both impressive and it is said he has a good work ethic as well. It remains to be seen how good he will be or if he even will play.
Overall Draft Grade: A-
Despite not having a first-round or third-round pick, Ryan Pace still managed to find potentially three long-term starters and two capable backups with only seven selections in the draft. This was one of Pace’s best drafts of his time in Chicago and hopefully, he continues his run of good drafts into next season.
